I went a little crazy
After my race last week where I was able to swim and bike in the same day and recovered just fine and then this week I biked and recovered just fine, I realized that I had been working out and recovering just fine for a few weeks now. So I decided that it was time to start working out three times a week. And bike twice a week.
Then, I started thinking, if I'm biking twice a week, I figure I can build up to the Olympic distance and do the Olympic AquaBike at Folsom -- I'd earned a free entry by volunteering. But I didn't have my second volunteer code so I signed up for a different Olympic AquaBike a month later instead.
And it's always hard to find people to do Open Water Swims so I signed up for more swim races while I was at it. I signed up for every race in July and every race in August - one on Thurs. night and one on Sunday each month.
Yes, I signed up for five races in the next three months! And I have two more to go -- that other AquaBike once I get my discount code and another open water swim race that I'm waiting on to make sure it doesn't conflict with a possible SVTC event that hasn't had its date nailed down yet.
Of course today I had a headache and it made me doubt the whole thing. However, as soon as I drank something, the headache went away. (The heat can trigger them too.)
I'm still kind of nervous about the whole thing.
I'm also amused that this morning when I got up, I found a text, an email and a voice mail from my bank. Did I make all those charges to my credit card signing up for all those charges or where they fraudulent, they wanted to know. I now have this picture in my head of some super-buff credit card scammer stealing my card and using it to sign up for endurance events, protein bars and Fluid Recovery Drink instead of the normal computers and cell phones.
